This week's Photo Friday challenge – Tacky – proved more difficult than I imagined. For those of you who know Blackpool, you'd probably agree that it's the world's capital of tackiness, but photographing said tackiness isn't easy. Well it is, but you end up with a photograph that looks tacky rather than one that depicts tackiness.

Anyway, the end result is this shot, which is kind of a compromise: the subject matter isn't quite so tacky as some of my other attempts this week, but the photograph is better ;-)
